Neiman Marcus presented the fashions for the runway show and helped forecast top spring and summer trends. “Stripes are huge this season. Also fully loaded, which is lots of beautiful embellishment, detail and embroidery, and neutrals are also important this season with a focus on green and khaki,” Neiman Marcus Public Relations Manager Jennifer Carnes said.

More than 600, very fashionably dressed guests, most of the women were breast cancer survivors, thrivers or currently undergoing treatment.  This year the chic luncheon will raise funds for the Seton Breast Care Center to acquire a state-of- the-art 3-D ‘Stereotatic’ biopsy system technology upgrade and to support and educate breast cancer awareness nationally.

“This event is an extraordinary confirmation of what we’re trying to accomplish and sustain,” co-founder of Seton Breast Care Center Marcia Levy said. “We opened the breast care center with the thought that it would be state-of-the- art care and caring and this event helps us to maintain the state-of- the-art care.”

Austin jewelry designer Kendra Scott has partnered with the event for many years,  “I come every year to support the survivors, the thrivers, the fighters and the women who are going through their battle and to not forget those who have lost their battle and together we are a lot stronger standing together than alone”, added Scott.

What a wonderful journey is has been for this true fashion trailblazer! Cheryl majored in Fashion Merchandising at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois where she was active in departmental events and found a particular interest in fashion show production. She assisted creating large runway shows and found it was easy and fulfilling. She also worked in a small fashion boutique where she used her natural love of sales and people skills to build a loyal clientele. But upon graduation, Dallas, TX was her target city to live to expand her fashion career.
